Olde Time Entertainment

When I saw old I mean one the oldest things to do while you're bored.
Now that I've been out of school for over a year, book have nudged themselves into the little nooks and crannies of my life. Okay, there have been days were I haven't read a book but no matter how far I distance myself from reading I'm drawn back to it.
As one can imagine the hobby of reading can be both expensive and the most cheapest form of entertainment. Let's look at the math:
Going to the movie theater: $7 for 2 hours
$3.50 per hour

Reading a book you bought:
$8 for a mass market book
2 hours of reading per day
7 days to complete book
14 hours a week
$0.60 per hour

Reading book from library:

See? It is probably one of the most cheapest forms of entertainment. I don't know about you but I enjoy reading more then watching a movie and you can take it anywhere.
If you like to read free book online, here's a list of some websites that offer free online books.
